    All parts are ready for the engine build bar the CAMS. We are chasing blanks now. So;

    1. Group A block prep'd and ready.
    2. Group A crank back form balancing.
    3. B35 head ported and combustion chamber re-shaped. Valve seats re-done.
    4. High performance springs/valves in. Using larger Alpina diameter valves.
    5. Group C high comp forged pistons prepp'd and ready. Rings in.
    6. S14/S38 conrods prep'd and ready.

    CAMS are the issue and need a solid push. hoping that the engine is ready mid to late March for early April install.

    With CAMS still being an issue we are having troubles finding blanks for the Schnitzer B34 grind. We have the grind card but no blank.

    As such we have ordered a big catcam. We will run the 314/277 degree cam with 12.45mm lift. Big lift and long duration. Race only and won't be street-able.

    We are about 3 to 4 weeks away from receiving the cam, then we can put it together four or five times, each time checking the clearances.

    I'll run it with the 45 DCOE's but if we find the engine is pulling power right up to 7500rpm and, that we still have good airflow, I'll consider 48DCOE's for a later upgrade.

    Expected engine complete by the end of May and then a few weeks for install and dyno.

    Cams are in, all parts in, engine going together. May be a month or two as Pip, the engine builder, is off to Silverstone with Jim Richards and the Group C 635CSi. If you see Pip in the pits, buy him a beer or two. http://www.fullboost.com.au/fb/index...i-silverstone/

    This reply is coming about 4 years after the question was asked regarding your wheels on page 1 of your build.
    I have a pair of 15x8" ten spoke rims that look very similar to yours, only 4 lug. Mine are Superformance brand from Australia, so those are likely native wheels that you have, if you haven't positively itentified them yet.
    Beautiful car!

    Nope. Never identified them. I'll Google Superperformance and see how we go. Thanks heaps.
